Pendennis Castle is a stone artillery fortress, founded by Henry VIII in 1540, sitting high on a headland overlooking Falmouth and just a short walk away from King Charles Primary School.
Year 5 pupils from the school are making the most of the local landmark to kickstart a project about the Tudors. In this programme, they visit the castle to take part in a series of activities devised by English Heritage.
The visit includes a workshop with a costumed interpreter who steps back in time and into the shoes of a Tudor lady. We follow the pupils as they get their hands on an assortment of artefacts that Tudor children would have used.
